TWINCORE Symposium 2021

COVID-19 vaccination and vaccine responses

The last TWINCORE Symposium emphasized on SARS-CoV-2 research in Lower Saxony at the beginning of the pandemic. Where are we one year later? With this year’s symposium we will follow up and focus on infection- as well as vaccination-induced SARS-CoV-2 specific immunity. Vaccination will be key to overcoming the pandemic and hopefully, will make it possible to have an on-site TWINCORE Symposium again in 2022.

Virtual Conference: 9 September 2021, 1:00 pm
